First, get your pink pool noodle and fold it over in the shape of an awareness ribbon.  Cut out some notches.  Next, unroll the shower puff and feed it all around your pool noodle.

Now, fold it back in the shape of an awareness ribbon again and use the zip tie to hold it together.

Make the bow

Next, cut a piece of Bowdabra bow wire, fold it in half, and lay it in the Bowdabra.

Now, scrunch the deco mesh into the Bowdabra.  Then, take the 2 1/2″ wide checked ribbon into the Bowdabra. Make a circle with the ribbon, find the center and push into the Bowdabra. Continue doing the same thing with the rest of the ribbon.

Add the tails in each color of the ribbons.

Finally, with the rest of the ribbon working in a funky bow style by twisting the ribbon, one side will be a loop, and two tails on the other. Scrunch everything down.

To finish add the floral picks. Now, grab the loop end of the bow wire and thread the other ends through for a slip knot, pull tight, and remove from the Bowdabra. Turn to the back and tie a knot.  Leave the excess wire for tying to the pool noodle.  Fluff and shape your bow.
